Construction permits discussed


City looks at grant
for floating marina
docks

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The city
council met April I and consid-
ered pre-construction permits
that may help city officials guide
contractors before construction
begins on homes.
Mike Brantley, council mem-
ber, began the discussion when


he remarked that new home sites
may contribute to water runoff
on adjacent, property. New home
sites with elevated dirt pads may
need to have proper drainage
ditches included in construction
plans. Other factors needed with
new home permits would be de-
mucking and adequate top soil
for sodding and landscaping.
Mr. Brantley suggested a per-
mit would allow the city to check
contractors before elevated dirt
pads are begun; however, per-
mit guidelines should be un-
complicated for builders. This


should alleviate some drainage
problems when new houses are
built next to earlier homes. City
attorney, Steve Ramunni, will re-
search the guidelines and word-
ing for a permit document.
Mary Booher, county public
librarian, announced that the li-
brary has a nrew interlocal agree-
ment with Heartland Library
Cooperative effective Oct. 1. She
mentioned that the transition
will benefit residents because
Glades County has more social,
economic and geographic simi-
larities to the other heartland


counties.
A daily courier from Heartland
Library Cooperative, and a grant
from the state are just two of the
new opportunities that resulted
from the transition. The previous
agreement had been with Char-
lotte County's library system.
"This is a step forward for
us," said Mary Booher.
John Ahern, council member,
opened discussion on a grant for
floating docks at a future marina
project. He commented that the
economic development council
and officials for River Forest Yacht


Center have looked at grants
available for floating docks, and
a pump out station. The station
would be in accordance with
Florida's Clean Vessel Act.
In the past, different ,1-. l,:,
ers have had plans for marina
and boat activity on the ,olr,-
sahatchee River in Moore Haven,
but no businesses or improve-
ments have taken hold in the
area.
"It is time that the city gets in-
volved," said Mike Brantley.

Riverhouse Marina
welcomes boaters

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN -- The old
Moore Haven Hotel was built in
1916 along the banks of the Ca-.
loosahatchee River before the
killing flood of 1926, and before
the Glades County courthouse
was built.
Old photos of the hotel
show two copulas on top of the
roof, but those are long gone.
The old hotel was a landmark
for travelers, and it is within
eyesight of a regionally famous


landmark, the Lone Cypress.
,In the early days of Glades
County history, the immediate
area by the hotel was a com-
merce waterway for transport-
ing people, equipment, fruits,
vegetables and commercial
fishing boats. The procession
of major engineering projects
such as the Old Moore Haven
Canal, navigation locks and the
Herbert Hoover Dike boomed
right in front of the hotel.
Today the old hotel is known
as Riverhouse Marina, and it
is the main house across the
street from the dock. Boaters
who tie up at the dock in front
of the main river house can use
electricity, and walk to the rec-


reaction building where they find
showers, ice and other ameni-
ties. Management offers the use
of a golf cart so guests may run
errands to the post office, or
the grocery store. Guests may
browse through the Florida his-
tory shelves at the public library
down the block.
The old hotel is now a resi-
dence for the owner, Linda
Stanton, and she offers several
apartments for lease. The south-
ern architecture uses long, long
porches, balconies and other
common areas for residents.
Windows, doors and the par-
lor are arranged so breezes

GLADES COUNTY -- The
Glades County community
traffic safety team (CTST) met
April 3 and reported new issues
and gave updates on ongoing
projects.
Sergeant Kim Hill, vice chair,
noted that for the month of
March there were 369 traffic ci-
tations given in the county, with
227 of them in the city of Moore
Haven. She remarked that there
was a broad spectrum of viola-
tions including not using seat
belts and DUI. Even though
there was a manpower short-
age due to-recent illnesses, the
road patrol was able to moni-
tor traffic during the latter part
of the busy winter season.
Debra Stallings, DOT, an-


nounced that the nation wide
Click It or Ticket campaign
would be observed May 12-
June 1. May is one of the worst
month's for traffic fatalities due
to seat belt violations. Ms. Stall-
ings reminded the team about
the Memorial Day observation
survey to be conducted by
CTST members and helpers.
Ms. Stallings notified the
members that in the near fu-
ture a law will take effect that
prohibits texting messages by
cell phone while driving. She
commented that it has caused
an increase in the number of
crashes, especially by young
drivers.
Angelica Pena,- CTST chair-
man, reported that there have
been complaints and observa-

tropical plants. Glades County is home to many flower and vegetable gardeners.

A lesson on Greek Mythology and worms


By Dan Culbert, horticul-
tural agent

UF/IFAS Extension Service
An office visitor brought in a
curious hanging thing form their
oak tree last week.
It was vaguely familiar to me,
but I let our Master Gardeners do
the legwork on this mystery.
They came up with an answer
which presents an interesting sto-
ry worth sharing with readers.
The story involves a bit of
Greek mythology, a natural self-
defense mechanism, a lesson
on dealing with worms on your
plants, and a fascinating look at
a beautiful creature that may oc-
casionally pop up in our Florida
Yards.

A small silk bag


The local gardener that
brought in our mystery bag re-
ported that there where a couple
of these things hanging around
his oak tree.
Okeechobee Master Gardener
Terry Lane also reported that she
S, has seen a small number of these
containers on the oaks in her Flor-
aBolan ida yard.
I suggested that it may be
some kind of cocoon, so she start-
,onve- ed her search for photos of insect
cocoons, and soon she tracked it
down.
It turns out this fuzzy bag is
an empty cocoon case for a large
moth. It has the curious name
of Polyphemus Moth, Antheraea
polyphemus. (The approximate
pronunciation is "Pal-e-FEE-
mus.")
The wings have very promi-
nent eye spots that give the moth
its name the one-eyed Cyclops
in Greek mythology was named


Polyphemus.
At this time of year in Florida,
a first generation of these moths
is now emerging from their silken
cases.
The fully developed adult se-
cretes an enzyme that helps dis-
solve a flap in the cocoon, and
the emerging adult wiggles its
way out.

Big, brown and
beautiful
Adult Polyphemus moths may
have wingspans of 4 to 6 inches.
The general color is anywhere be-
tween red and brown, but there
are several unique markings that
make these moths distinctive.
Males and females look very
similar except the male has larger
feathery antenna, while the ladies
have a larger body to hold their
eggs.
The front wings have a small
transparent wing spot ringed with
light yellow.
When the moth is disturbed, it
shows its back wings, which also
have eyespots.
These hind wing markings are
very noticeable.
The blue-black eyes would cer-
tainly scare a predator into think-
ing they were about to attach a
much large creature.
A short while after emerging
from the cocoon the adult is ready
to find a mate.
Female mpths secrete a phero-
mone that attracts males from
miles away, and then she spends
the next week finding suitable
trees to lay single eggs.
Adult moths do not feed at all
during their brief final stage of
life.
Several generations of these
moths can be found in Florida,
while in more northern areas two


generations per year are more
typical.
The adult Polyphemus Moth is
a member of the regal moths or
giant silk moths.
This family (Saturniidae) in-
cludes many large sized moths
often with striking colors and
shapes.
They attract a lot of attention
when they are encountered, es-
pecially at night when they bang
against a window.
Other Saturn family moths are
the lime green Luna Moth, the yel-
lowish lo moth, and the Cecropia
moth, a similar reddish brown
adult.

Great big green worm
The caterpillar of this moth
starts out as a small light brown
egg.
It hatches into a tiny yellow cat-
erpillar, and will consume 86,000
times its weight in two months.
They are not picky eaters, and
will feed on trees leaves including
oaks maples, elms, hickories and
willows.
One source even suggested
that they would sometimes be a
pest on peach and cherry trees;
another report said that the
Polyphemus caterpillar may eat
citrus tree leaves.
Full grown larvas are thick
bodied and can measure around
three inches in length.
This species is apple green in
color with yellow spots or lines on
each segment.
The head is reddish brown in
color.
The caterpillars of this moth
family have lots of barbs and
spines that make them look fero-
cious, but only one of these, the
lo moth caterpillar, actually has
stinging hairs.


Is this a pest?
This insect is found through-
out most of North America, and
has been reported in many areas
of Florida.
There is no "official" sighting
of it in Okeechobee (yet), but it
has been reported seen in High-
lands.
If you can positively iden-
tify one in your yard, please let
us know so we can confirm its
range.
They are not abundant, and
rarely can be considered to be a
pest because their numbers are
not that great. Occasionally they
may damage seedlings or young
trees, but they can be picked off
and disposed of if they are seen
on high value ornamentals.
The use of toxic pesticides to
manage these caterpillars would
probably not be recommended
except in extreme cases.
Parasitic wasps are known to
attack the caterpillars, and squir-
rels are thought to consume the
pupa that is found inside co-
coons.
Other threats to this moth are
the removal of tree branches by
pruning and night lights, which
can attract adult moths to places
where predators or curious peo-
ple will capture and dispense with
the big moths.
I've placed more information
on our Okeechobee web page,
*http://okeechobee.ifas.ufl.edu.
If you need additional informa-
tion on the Polyphemus Moth,
please e-mail us at okeechobee@
ifas.ufl.edu or call us at 863-763-
6469. Okeechobee residents can

Florida. Independent is owned by a unique trust that enables this newspa-
per to pursue a mission of journalistic service to the citizens of the commu-
nity. Since no dividends are paid, the company is able to thrive on profit
margins below industry standards. All after-tax surpluses are reinvested in
Independent's mission of journalistic service, commitment to the ideals of
the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and support of the comm-
munity's deliberation of public issues.


We Pledge...
* To operate this newspaper as a public trust.
* To help our community become a better
place to live and work, through our dedication
to conscientious journalism.
* To provide the information citizens need to
make their own intelligent decisions about
public issues.
* To report the news with honesty, accuracy,
objectivity, fearlessness and compassion.
* To use our opinion pages to facilitate
community debate, not to dominate it with
our own opinions.
* To disclose our own conflicts of interest or
potential conflicts to our readers,
* To correct our errors and to give each correction
to the prominence it deserves.
* To provide a right to reply to those we write
about.
* To treat people with courtesy, respect and
compassion.

What does it take to
move a mailbox?
For the past four years the
residents of Click Drive in Lake-
port have been trying to get our
mailboxes moved from a clus-
ter down on Highway 78 to in
front" of our houses on Click
Drive. Our street is a relatively
well paved one of about 1/2 mile
before it enters Brighton Reserva-
tion. We have been through the
petition process with the local
Postmaster to no avail, we have
been through letters to the Post
Master General to be answered
only by some aide referring us to
the District level which resulted in
nothing. We currently are dealing
with U.S. House of Representa-
tive Tim Mahoney which has
been instrumental in the Postal
Service telling us that we need a
Culdasac at the end of the paved
portion of Click Drive so the post-
al delivery driver would have a
place to turn around without go-


ing on private property. Well this
is where Glades County gets into
the picture. We have asked the
county through Commissioner
Paul Beck for a culdasac to meet
this requirement. Everybody gets
into the act.....the Road Depart-
ment, the County Administrator,
the County Attorney all making a
giant issue out of a turn-around at
the end of our street as if it were
a major highway through Moore
Haven. Many conversations with
Commissioner Beck have resulted
in his telling us that he is doing his
best to get the project approved.
Wait a minute now! The project
approved? We are not asking
for an 80 foot turn-around for an
18 wheeler to maneuver, we are
asking enough for a regular car
to maneuver by the mail delivery
driver and that's usually a small
car. Now this process with the
county has been going on for al-
most five months. How long does
it take to get something done for
the residents of Glades County?
This is where the phrase "Here


We Go Again" comes in. For ex-
ample, if a "Good Ole Boy" in
the Ortona area wants a sidewalk
going down Ortona Road to the
recreation area and down Wil-
liams Road it gets done in good
time. This sidewalk runs from
Highway 78 down Ortona Road
to the recreation area and also
down Williams Road to the end.
Approximately four plus miles.
For what? Hardly anyone uses it
because there are hardly anyone
living along it until you get down
to the recreation area or the Or-
tona community.
Yet, here we are struggling
with a "Drag Your Foot Attitude
and They Will Go Away" syn-
drome for a one day job of a
culdasac. Well, like the Good Ole
Boy says, "It ain't going away."
There is absolutely no reason that
this cannot be accomplished. The
residents living at the paved end
would welcome the turn-around
to eliminate vehicles backing into
their yards to turn around. The
street is a Dead End street be-


cause Brighton has it closed off.
Also, we currently are experienc-
ing a "Drag Your Foot" attitude
with Representative Tim Mahon-
ey's office and a letter is going to
him next.
What dose ,it take for our
County to respond to the needs
of its citizens? We elect them
based upon them telling us that
they will make a difference, right?
We elected an "At Large" com-
missioner to make a difference,
right? Well how many have seen
the difference? Many times I will
be talking to someone about is-
sues within the county, and their
remark is, "Well, that's Glades
County for you!" Well, I have
heard that remark so many times
that like Earl Pitts would say, "It
makes me want to puke in my
grits!"

General News and Information


Taxpayers to receive
IRS checks
Starting in May, the IRS will
begin sending economic stimu-
lus payments to an estimated 130
million taxpayers. You don't need
to do anything more than file a
2007 tax return! The IRS will do
the rest! All exemptions shown
on the return must have valid so-
cial security numbers. If you don't
have a filing requirement, i.e., so-
cial security recipients, veterans
with disabilities, widows of vet-
erans with disabilities, or railroad
retirement benefit recipients, you
will need to send in a simple tax
return this year in order to receive
this payment. For the latest infor-
mation go to www.irs.gov.

Lions' Valentine Dance

Due to a scheduling problem
with John Boy Auditorium, the
Clewiston Lions Club's annual

Auditorium. The Juke Box Band
will still provide the music and
the event will still be for the bene-
fit of the Dan McCarthy Memorial
Scholarship Fund. Look for more
details in the coming weeks.

Burn ban in effect
The Glades County Board of
County Commissioners have de-
termined that emergency condi-
tions exists as a result of extreme
drought and other existing weath-
er conditions. The Board imple-
mented a burn ban, starting Jan.
8. The ban will continue in effect,
without interruption, until the
Board of County Commissioners
appropriate. The ban suspends
any and all outdoor burning ex-
cept where outdoor burning is
being performed pursuant to an
outdoor burning permit issued by
the Division of Forestry or pursu-
ant to other State authorization.


The suspended/banned outdoor
burning includes: outdoor burn-
ing of yard waste, recreational
fires, the private use and dis-
charge of fireworks and sparklers

ignition source.

Girls flag football taking center stage


By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
GLADES Football is currently
springing ahead, but right now,
the girls are taking center stage.
Got that, boys?
Flag football, a girls spring
sport, is a refreshing option for
those who don't want to run
track, play softball or join the
tennis team. It's also a chance to
show how tough the girls can ac-
tually be.
For both the Pahokee Lady
Blue Devils and Glades Central
Lady Raiders, who squared off
for competition last Wednesday
evening in Pahokee, they would
rather be playing tackle football.
But the rules of the game won't
allow it.
So both teams are relegated to
playing football in a more finesse-
styled fashion, which could be
why both teams have losing re-
cords right now.
But, really, even if their records
or score margins don't show it,
both teams play hard to the whis-
tle and just leave it all out on the
field.

Lady Raiders moving
ahead
Samuel Curry, a first-year
coach, considers the program's
2008 season a great bonding ex-
perience. Though they have a
1-3 record as of March 31 they
defeated Okeechobee but lost
to Royal Palm Beach, Welling-
ton and Seminole Ridge once
you actually see this team play
a game, you'll see that this team
has meshed together nicely,
which will likely bode well for
next season.
"This team is young, talented
and has a great future ahead of
them," Coach Curry said. "The
girls stick together regardless
of the circumstances. If they're
down in. a game, they always
go full speed ahead, no matter
what."
For instance, Rodkeshia Joiner,
a junior quarterback and safety,
led the Lady Raiders to a couple
of first downs on their opening
drive against Royal Palm Beach in
their March 27, contest at Effie C,
Grear Field.
Though the drive stalled, Rod-
keshia played tenacious defense
throughout the game and snared
an interception in the second
half, which put them in position
to notch their second win.
Though the Lady Raiders
wound up on the losing end,
23-9, they grew from the experi-
ence, realizing that its important
to not miss opportunities to pull
flags on defense and communi-
cate on both sides of the ball.
There are a total of 21 play-
ers on the team, with only five
seniors. For that reason alone,
the coaching staff second-year


INI/Naji Tobias
Though the Lady Raiders flag football team lost to Royal Palm
Beach, 23-9, junior quarterback and safety Rodkeshia Joiner
showed plenty of promise as she led their opening drive with
a couple of first downs. Rodkeshia finished the game with a
receiving touchdown and a second-half interception in the
March 27 contest.


INI/Naji Tobias
Though the Pahokee Blue Devils (0-6) were shut out, 37-0,
by the archrival Glades Central Raiders (2-4) in the April 2
flag football contest, Blue Devils quarterback junior quarter-
back Janaria Holloway did show some flash with her arm as
she completed a pass with this play in the second half of the


game.
special teams coach Tyshia Cross,
second-year defensive coordina-
tor Shelton Harriot and Coach
Curry, the'team's offensive coor-
dinator are not worried one bit.
Fans still have a opportunity to
check .out the Lady Raiders flag
football team. Here is the remain-
ing season's schedule:
April 21 to 23 "District
play
April 26 to 29 Regional
play
May 8 Senior All-Star
competition at John 1.
Leonard 8 p.m.
"The girls get their excitement
from watching the boys football
team play and win," Coach Curry
said. "So as a coach, I want them
to emulate the boys in their suc-
cess."

Blue Devils hanging in
there
To say the least, it has not been
an easy season for Pahokee's flag
football team.
The Lady Blue Devils are in a
tough predicament this season as


INI/Naji Tobias
Lady Raiders senior Vonneshia Burey, who is described as
having great agility and excellent hands, shows them both
on display after making a nice catch in the second half of the
March 27 game against Royal Palm Beach at Effie C. Grear
Field. Vonneshia also caught a fourth-quarter interception for
a touchdown, which allowed Glades Central to get back in
the game.

they have had to compete with
the track program for girls to have
a desire to play.
Not only that, with their 0-6 re-
cord as of March 31 losses are to
Palm Beach Central, Lake Worth,
Okeechobee, Inlet Grove, Semi-
nole Ridge and Wellington it's
evident that the Lady Blue Devils
would like to spend more time
playing football with each other
throughout the year.
Playing year-round has ben-


efitted most of their opponents,
which are from the coast, accord-
ing to Brian Crawford, the second-
year defensive coach.
"We're an inexperienced team
that has had some bad breaks in
games this season," Coach Craw-
ford said. "The team plays strong
at the end of games. Our problem
is that we get nervous at the be-
ginning at games, but if we come
out confident early, we can com-
pete with any team."
For one, Coach Crawford
would like to see his 15 girls learn
the basics well enough blocking,
catching, pitching the ball and flag


pulling, to name a few fundamen-
tal skills. With those basics intact,
combined with proper condition-
ing, Coach Crawford believes that
the flag football program could be
good enough to compete in state
tournaments in the future.
Ray Hamilton, the first-year
offensive coach, knows what it
takes to win a flag football cham-
pionship, as he won six city flag
football championships in his
hometown of Tampa.
With the feeling that flag foot-
ball doesn't get the same attention
as track and field, Coach Ham-
ilton wants the program to be
established as one that would at-
tract girls who normally wouldn't
come out for spring sports.
Here are some athletes to look
out for this season:
Freshman LaQuosha
Wright is a wide receiver
and linebacker who is
considered a great athlete
who can catch and pull
flags with the best girls in
flag football.
Freshmen Karenza Harvey
(middle linebacker) and
Wilnesha Jones (rusher)
are both team captains,
who are described as an
aggressive players who
display coverage abil-
ity, with Karenza calling
all the plays for their de-
fense.
The Lady Blue Devils
competed against Royal
Palm Beach on Tuesday
and Glades Central yes-
terday.
But if you couldn't see
those games, you could
check out the Lady Blue
Devils' remaining games,
which are as follows:
April 15, at 7 p.m. Home
against Okeechobee
April 17, at 7 p.m. Home
against Palm Beach Lakes
April 21-23 District Tour-
nament
April 26-29 Regional
Tournament
May 8, at 8 p.m. Senior
All-Stars at John I. Leon-
ard
"Winning, plus the current
assembly of girls gaining experi-
ence, could possibly improvethe
image of the program," Coach
Hamilton said. +

and .parents.
Teens are among the top
Internet users who engage in
online chats, e-mail and discus-


sion forums. The Tobacco Free
Florida campaign created profile
pages for the two largest social
networks on the web Face-
book and MySpace. These social
networking websites, which
are twice as likely to be popular
among smokers ages 18-24, give
users the opportunity to affiliate
themselves with the Tobacco Free
Florida campaign by becoming
a "fan" (Facebook) or a "friend"
(MySpace), post their comments
and connect with others who are
campaign fans and friends. After
only a few weeks, the Facebook
site has accumulated more than
4,000 fans.
Since more than half of on-
line teens download music,
the campaign created Smoke-
Free Songs, which provides free


downloadable songs from non-
smoking Florida bands includ-
ing Maida Vale, Sarah Mac Band,
The Twelfth Chapter, Jonny Diaz
and Paul Clayton. New songs will
be continuously added to www.
tobaccofreeflorida.com/smoke-
freesongs.
The campaign has also part-
nered with YouTube to sponsor
the YouCare video contest where
entrants share why they don't
smoke. The contest allows users
to vote for their favorite submis-
sion and the top 50 videos will be
shown on the first ever statewide
On-Demand channel devoted ex-
clusively to the campaign, reach-

Glades General ventilator associated

pneumonia rates reduced to zero


BELLE GLADE-As hospital-
acquired infections gain more
attention in the media, Glades
General Hospital (GGH)
achieved a Ventilator Associated
Pneumonia (VAP) rate of 0 per-
cent for all of 2007. VAP, a lung
infection, is the primary cause
of death among patients who
acquire infections in the hospi-
tal. VAP occurs in patients who
must receive mechanical venti-
lation for conditions other than
pneumonia. According to the
National Healthcare Safety Net-
work Report for 2006 released
June 2007 by the Association
for Professionals in Infection
Control, the national VAP aver-
age is 4.2 percent.
According to Erin Etheridge,
RN, BSN, the Infection Control
practitioner at GGH, "The staff's
dedication to safety protocols
strongly contributed to the elim-
ination of VAP and reduction of
overall infection rates. These
statistics are proof of the con-
tinued commitment to infection
prevention in our hospital," said
Ms. Etheridge.
A ventilator is used when a
patient can no longer breathe
on his own or when he cannot
breath quickly or deeply enough
to maintain life-sustaining blood
oxygen levels. Glades General
is dedicated to obtaining newer,
safer and more efficient technol-
ogy, and this philosophy played
a role in the elimination of VAP
at GGH. In December 2005,
GGH purchased five Respiron-
ics Esprit ventilators, which are
used in conjunction with non-


invasive cardiac output moni-
tors. These monitors commu-
nicate with the ventilators and
provide vital information to the
therapist and physician, en-
abling them to reduce the time
on the ventilator, by accurately
monitoring a patient's ability to
breathe more effectively on his
own. This information that was
previously only available from
an invasive central line cath-
eter inserted into the heart but
is now available non-invasively,
without harm or trauma to the
ventilated patient. The combi-
nation of utilizing innovative
equipment such as the new
ventilators and the use of bed-
side clinical monitoring helped
Glades General to achieve. the
elimination of VAP. Glades Gen-
eral is the only acute-care hospi-
tal in Palm Beach County with
the non-evasive cardiac output
monitoring system.
The rates can be attributed
to the institution of the "VAP
bundle," which is a set of in-
terventions specifically for the
prevention of VAP and is seen
as the key to the hospital's ac-
complishment. These interven-
tions include: preventing blood
pooling and clotting (usually the
legs) in a patient who is immo-
bile; preventing production bf
excess stomach acid; keeping
the head of the patient's bed el-
evated at an angle of 30 degrees
or more, which decreases the
chance of aspiration and allows
more natural blood perfusion
and gas diffusion of the lungs;
and defining periods where se-
dation is turned off or reduced


significantly to assess whether
the patient can start the process
of being weaned off ventilator
assistance. A hospital-wide ef-
fort contributed to the success
of the interventions. By utilizing
national -guidelines and educat-
ing physicians and nurses, the
number of patient ventilator
days began decreasing.
In 2006, VAP prevention be-
came a National Safety Goal
established by the Joint Com-
mission of Health. GGH's com-
mitment to educating the staff
and placing protocols in place
has provided patients the very
best care. By eliminating VAP's,
Glades .General has decreased
mortality rates and reduced
costly length of stay in the ICU
and the hospital. In 2008 to
date, GGH has maintained a 0
percent VAP rate.
Donald M. Berwick, MD, MPP,
the President and CEO of the In-
stitute for Healthcare Improve-
ment (IHI) in Cambridge, Mass.
commented that "The achieve-
ment at GGH of a VAP rate of 0
percent for the whole of 2007 is
superb work. I cannot overstate
how much it helps IHI, our mis-
sion, and hospitals all over the
nation to have examples like
this to draw on. GGH's continu-
ing leadership across the whole
frontier of patient care quality
and safety adds hope and con-
fidence about what is possible
for us all."

Moore Haven School looks to the future IM


For the past seven years, the
Moore Haven High School Schol-
arship Foundation Committee
continues to look to the future.
The future being the current grad-
uating class of Moore Haven High
School, and each class to follow.
The goal of the foundation is to
enable each and every graduate
the opportunity to continue their
education. Whether a graduate
wishes to go on to a college or
university, or vocational technical
school, the foundation hopes to
be able to provide the resources
and incentives for their higher ed-
ucation. The committee members
have worked on various fundrais-
ing efforts such as a Bar B Que,
Chalo Nitka Kids Day and raffles.


The goal is to provide the Valedic-
torian a $12,000 scholarship over
a four year period and provide
any graduating senior the oppor-
tunity to obtain various amounts
for books and tuition. Some grad-
uates will receive more than one
scholarship opportunity.
This goal is accomplished by
reaching out to individuals and
the business community. Many
Moore Haven families have ben-
efited by this foundation, and
they give back to the community.
All contributions to the MHHS
Scholarship Foundation are tax
deductible. Contributors are able
to share the joy of the graduates
receiving the scholarships at an
event to be held in May. "It is a


wonderful feeling knowing these
graduates are given an opportu-
nity to obtain their educational
goals. Our original intent was to
raise enough funds to sponsor
the Valedictorian Scholarship,
the community participation has
been beyond our expectations,
and the results have provided
every graduating senior with the
opportunity to receive a schol-
arship." States Superintendent
Wayne Aldrich, he added "The
Foundation and its dedicated di-
rectors are proud of the graduat-
ing seniors and sincerely thanks
each individual sponsor. We are
very grateful to Lykes Land De-
velopment for teaming up with
the Foundation and becoming


the sponsors of the Valedictorian
Scholarship. The Foundation en-
courages everyone to be a spon-
sor. Every donation, no matter the
amount, is sincerely appreciated.
Thanks for helping our Gradu-
ates."
In addition to the tax deduct-
ible contributions, the foundation
members are selling chances to
win $1,000 in cash or a freezer full
of beef. The drawing will be held
in May. Tickets are available by
contacting any of the Foundation
members, Wayne Aldrich, Paul
Beck, David Chapman, Joe Flint,
Ellen Geake, John Huysman,
Larry Luckey, Don McCardle, Jea-
nette Peeples, and Carl Perry,

Pahokee Lady Softball program looking for recognition


Pahokee Lady Blue
Devils defeat Palm
Beach Lakes

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PAHOKEE One would think
that softball is a new sport played
at Pahokee Middle-Senior High
School.
But it actually isn't, as the girls
spring sport has been playing
over 15 years now.
For one thing, Ranae Har-
rington, the first-year head coach,
would like nothing more than
having the program gain notoriety
throughout Palm Beach County.
Not only that, Harrington wants
the girls to have an opportunity to
play softball year-round, just like
those from other areas do.
"Teams on the coast play year-


round, so those girls are able
to keep their basic skills," Har-
rington said. "Our girls are only
playing three to four months a
year and many of them have not
played before high school."
It's not the only hurdle that the
softball team has to endure just to
stay competitive.
The girls don't even have their
own high school field to practice
and play home games on, so they
have to compete at the Duncan
Padgett Park on State Road 715,
about five miles from the high
school.
To make matters worse, trans-
portation isn't even provided by
the school for their home games,
according to Harrington.
Thankfully, the Pahokee Recre-
ational Center provides a courtesy
to the team by letting them use a
center-provided van for transpor-
tation purposes.


But what agonizes Harrington
the most is that if the girls wanted
to participate in a year-long soft-
ball league, they would have to
travel to the coast to do so.
"I would like to see us be
able to practice and play more
throughout the year," Harrington
said. "It's inconvenient for is to
have to go over to the coast and
participate in city leagues. A lot of
our girls don't have transportation
to begin with. We really need to
have our own city league teams
out in the Glades area."
The softball team, which has
11 players but only two seniors,
feature four that played last sea-
son. But the rest of them had nev-
er picked up a softball before the
season began in early January, ac-
cording to the softball coach.
Prior to the start of the softball
season, which began on Feb. 19,
the girls went to a weekend-long


softball camp in Orlando. There,
the athletes learned pitching and
catching techniques, in addition
to a variety of hitting strategies.
Those techniques and strate-
gies served the softball team well
in their 20-9 victory over Palm
Beach Lakes on April 3.
A softball game normally lasts
six innings, but after the Lady
Blue Devils scored more than 10
runs in the fifth inning against
Palm Beach Lakes, the game was
called.
This was made possible due to
a ruling that says if a team leads
by more than 10 runs at any given
point, the game is over.
"Our girls were ready for Palm
Beach Lakes, they needed this
win," Harrington said. "Our fans
were very supportive of our girls.
The girls kept their composure in
spite of the other team's unsports-
manlike conduct throughout the


game."
During the game, it seemed
as if both dugouts were going to
ensue in a fight due to what was
perceived to be taunting by the
Palm Beach Lakes softball play-
ers. Also, six Pahokee softball
players were hit by pitches in the
contest.
Amazingly, the Lady Blue Dev-
ils drew 18 walks in the game,
in addition to an inside-the-park
home run by Leporshae Jones,
who plays at third base and in the
left field. Jones scored two runs in
the contest.
Though the softball team has
a 3-12 record, with one regular
season game left at Wellington
Christian School tomorrow, the
coaches which include assis-
tants Jamie Wheeler and Hector
Lopez like what they're seeing
from the team thus far.
"The girls have made great


progress this season," Wheeler
said. "At first, they weren't com-
fortable with trusting each other
to make plays. But now, they're
working hard and playing as a
team."
District play begins after spring
break, with the date, time and lo-
cation to be determined.
According to Harrington, there
hasn't been consistency at the
coaching position for at least the
past five years. But she wants to
assure the girls that she will re-
main with the program next year
and beyond.
"I'm excited with this being my
first year coaching, the girls have
been very willing to learn and
have done an excellent job," Har-
rington said. "I want to continue
working with them and I hope
that they all return next year."

The Future Train: Will Florida's children be left at the station?


When children all over the world
climb aboard the future train and
head off for tomorrow, will Florida's
children be left at the station? Flori-
da's leaders appear bent on making
sure that happens.
Consider their enthusiasm for a
constitutional amendment to abol-
ish property taxes for schools. Then
consider their slashing hundreds of
millions of dollars from the school
budget. Their actions and words
speak loudly of their intentions.
Their actions imply a willful
and deliberate effort to bankrupt


Florida's public education system.
Their words speak of economic ne-
cessity during hard times. We can't
raise taxes, they say, so we must cut
spending.
If economics are the root cause
of their actions, then Florida's lead-
ers are proposing the economic
equivalent of eating the seed corn.
We must wait for better times,
they say, before we can spend more
on education. Meanwhile, we must
cut the budget and try to get by.
Children don't have the luxury of
waiting. Their time is short and their


window of opportunity brief. Each
child's ticket for the future train ex-
pires quickly.
When has a community ever
been so set on giving its children less
than its elders received as children?
Floridians seem determined to do
just that.
Florida's voters solidly back their
leaders on reducing property taxes.
Just recently, they overwhelmingly
endorsed property tax reductions
for local governments. There is lit-
tle doubt they will do the same for
school property taxes.


A lot of Floridians don't live in
a community. They live in a condo
or a subdivision or a trailer. Florida
is just a place where they ended up
and they have no attachment to nor
concern for its past or future.
For its children however, Florida
is where they start and its future is
their immediate concern. If they are
to avoid just ending up somewhere,
they must catch the future train be-
fore it leaves.
Florida is a Republican state with
a Republican governor and legis-
lature. They are true believers in


reducing taxes and cutting govern-
ment down to size. Whether those
tactics will work in the present crisis
is an open question.
Republicans are facing a real
challenge to their anti-tax, anti-
government philosophy. With the
economy tanking, they need these
tax cuts to succeed spectacularly. If
the cuts don't work, they may lose
several generations of voters like
they did in 1932.
Florida's children can't vote and,
all too often, their parents don't vote.
Whether Florida's voters will follow


their leaders over this tax cut cliff
next November remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, the future train is
leaving the station and when it
leaves it never returns. None who
miss it ever see it again. And none
who miss it ever catch up with those
who don't.
If our children get left at the sta-
tion, the rest of us will be there with
them. Their future and ours are in-
separable. If they miss the future
train, so will we all.

Don't worry, be happy, live longer


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
It all began back in the mid-
60s when some 7,000 students at
the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill took the Minnesota
Multiphasic Personality Inventory,
a test that, among other things,
measured the participants' ten-
dency to be optimistic or pessi-
mistic. Of that group, 1,630 were
found by the test to be clearly pes-
simists and 923 to be clearly op-
timists. The rest fell somewhere
in the middle. Over the next four
decades, 476 of those who had
taken the test died, from causes
ranging from accident to illness to
suicide to homicide.
By tracking and collating all
this information, researchers de-
termined that the pessimists had
a significantly greater likelihood
of dying sooner from any cause
than did the optimists.
While many of us are not pes-
simists by inclination, we can be


pessimistic in the worries we face
every day. If we stop to think about
it, most of us don't live our clays in
anxiety over how global warming
will affect us or fret about how or
when the world will end. Most of
our concerns are over more per-
sonal issues such as, "Will I get
a good report from the doctor?"
"Will my kids stay out of trouble?"
"Am I being a good parent?" "Will
I be able to pay my bills?"
"Can any of us by worrying
add a single hour to our span of
life?" The question is as timely to-
day as when Jesus posed it over
2,000 years ago (Matthew 6:24).
Does worrying do us any good?
Lord knows, we've put huge
amounts of time and energy into
worrying about all sorts of things
that might happen, most of which
never actually come to pass. Hav-
ing burned through all that anxi-
ety, what do we have to show
for it? Have we, as Jesus asked,
added even a single hour to our
lives? Probably we've taken away
hours.


Think back to the study men-
tioned above. The study's con-
clusion suggests that Jesus was
right. But even more, it reveals a
surprising flip side to that argu-
ment, suggesting that not being a
chronic worrier can add not only
an hour, but perhaps even years
to a lifespan.
When Jesus posed this ques-
tion about adding to our span
through worry, He went on to
make clear that what He was call-
ing for was for us to trust God. He
pointed to the birds that do not
sow or reap the fields but are fed
by our heavenly Father. He point-
ed to the flowers that do not toil
or spin but are clothed in beauty
as well by our heavenly Father.
It's important to understand
that His words were directed to
people who still had to sow, reap,
toil and to spin. Jesus wasn't
telling them to stop doing those
tasks; He simply wanted them to
understand that their lives were
a lot more than the sum of their


sowing, reaping, toiling, spinning,
or the length of their FaceBook
profile. Jesus is not Dr. Phil giv-
ing us a prescription for how to
avoid anxiety. His main point is:
"Strive first for the kingdom of
God and His righteousness, and
all these things will be given to
you as well.
None of this is to say that we
won't have some normal worries.
We can't love someone without
worrying about threats to his or
her well-being. We can't be sen-
sitive persons without occasional
concern that we haven't done all
we should. We can't listen to the
news without some uneasiness-
about the direction many things
in the world appear to be going.
But we can be focused enough
on the things of God that we're
able to relax about our priorities
and have confidence in God's
providential care. That's why, in-
stead of wringing our hands in
despair, we clasp our hands in
prayer.


Entitlement and bearing the heat of the day


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St.Martin's Church,
Clewiston
At a,recent meeting, two city
leaders spoke about regional
problems. .
One of them had to do with an
age-old problem-stealing. All too
often it's useless to ask somebody
"Why did you do that?" when
they are caught doing something
that is wrong. Sometimes, they
don't know themselves and to
try go get an answer when a per-
son doesn't know it is a waste of
time.
Maybe there are some indica-
tors out there that deserve our
consideration. The old parable,
two thousand years old now,
about the laborers in the vine-
yard (Matthew 20: ff) is about a
householder who goes out and
seeks laborers. He finds them and
they agree to work for a certain
amount. There is still work to be
done, so he goes out later and
hires others, making the same
agreement about paying them.
When the day is almost over, he
hires the last of his crew; same
agreement. When it's time to pay
everyone at the end of the day,
they are all given equal wages.
This leads to grumbling and
complaining; they were all paid


even if some had borne the heat
of the day and others worked only
an hour. They complain about the
"inequality" of the system, but
the householder reminds them of
their agreement and tells them as
well "Am I not allowed to do what
I choose. with what belongs to
me? Or do you begrudge my gen-
erosity? (Matthew 20:15)." In our
times, I see what must be some
feelings of "entitlement" when
people try to level the playing field
in their eyes by immoral or illegal
actions. Many of our businesses
have to hire extra personnel to
deal with retail theft. I wonder
what makes people think they are
entitled to take things from stores
without paying for them?
Is it because they feel others
have more advantages and they
have been somehow deprived? Is
it because something is lacking in
their lives and they will make up
for their felt shortcomings by at-
tacking others who they think can
afford the loss? I had someone
tell me once that I had an "easy
and fun" job and "I'd like to do
what you do." I told the person
that they could also share in my
life it might not be as "easy" or
"fun" as thought, but if they felt a
call, were willing to go to college
and then seminary, and wished
to enter a ministry, it could be
theirs. The response was "Oh...!


and a comment about something
easier followed. There was a cer-
tain amount of the "heat of the
day" to be borne on the way to
the ministry, and ever afterward;
they were "entitled" to a ministry
but it might not be as it looked. To
be entitled to what others seem to
have also requires some bearing
the "heat of the day" and then we
can sit back and enjoy the fruits of
our labors with everyone's bless-
ings. One of the neighborhoods
where I lived was served by a
large chain store. The store was
closed one day by management
because of too much loss and
"disappearance" of stock. People
who relied on the store being in
their neighborhood were hurt; es-
pecially those with transportation
problems. The employees who
worked there were now out of a
job.
Others were left without a
source for the brand names and
specialproducts that the store
sold. Those who felt a special en-
titlement to the goods to be found
unguarded in the store ultimately
short-changed themselves and a
lot of other people along the way.
Management,,.out o{, frustration,
four(l it easier to-close the store
- and that's what they did.
In reality, we have very few
"entitlements" what comes from
God is really a trust to be used


wisely. If someone feels angry,
if they feel that they have some-
how been cheated, I'd suggest
they look at what they have been
given and what they really need.
The rules, the commandments
we have been given are not there
to spoil life but to make it pos-
sible for all of us to live together.
Those who bore the heat of the
day agreed on a wage that must
have been a living wage at the
time and capable of meeting their
needs; otherwise they would not
have signed on.
There are always people who
earn more, have more, seem to
do less work, live more luxurious-
ly. The opportunities for all to de-
velop their God-given potentials,
to apply themselves, to make use
of resources available are still out
there for us all.
Taking short-cuts can lead to
complications, unforeseen prob-
lems, trouble not thought about.
The one that is "entitled" to do
what He wants with His own is
the Lord. When people decide
that they know better, they're
heading fut .probler i -ie does.
what He -antf. with His o% n but"
all are blessed by Him; each in his
own way. He's "entitled" to do
that-and thanks be to God for it!

There's a wonderful world around us. Full of
fascinating places. Interesting people. Amazing
cultures. Important challenges. But sadly, our
kids are not getting the chance to learn about
their world. When surveys show that half of
America's youth cannot locate India or Iraq on
a map, then we have to wonder what they do
know about their world. That's why we created
MyWonderfulWoddcorg. It's part of a free National
Geographic-led campaign to give your kids the
power of global knowledge. Go there today and
help them succeed tomorrow. Start with our free

'Peanut hay' is



becoming popular


Perennial peanut is a high-
quality persistent tropical forage
legume which can be grazed or
fed to horses, dairy and beef cat-
tle, hogs, goats, sheep and rabbits.
It can be stored as dry hay or si-
lage and is a substitute for alfalfa.
Florigraze and Arbrook cultivars
of perennial peanut, or rhizoma
peanut, as it is sometimes called,
have been selected in Florida for
their high yield, quality, persis-
tence, disease resistance, and
drought tolerance.
Perennial peanut is well-adapt-
ed to dry, sandy soils, and has the
potential to persist indefinitely.
Perennial peanut is planted us-
.ing rhizomes, or underground
stems, dug from a nursery plant-
ing. It does not require nitrogen
fertilizer, and once established,
can be maintained with low level
management. Hay yields in North
Florida range from 3 to 5 tons per
year for well-established stands.
Quality and uses are so similar to
that of alfalfa that perennial pea-
nut has been coined "Florida's
alfalfa."
Perennial peanut grows well in
Florida, south Georgia and south-
ern portions of the Gulf States. It
requires no pesticides for control
of insects or diseases nor does it
require applied nitrogen as do tra-
ditional grass forages. These char-
acteristics make perennial peanut


an environmentally sound, low
resource consuming crop that
ranks it as an important compo-
nent for sustainable agricultural
systems.
Perennial peanut evolved un-
der tropical conditions, however,
it adapts well to subtropical or
warm temperate climates. In the
northern hemisphere, this in-
cludes locations below31 degrees
to 32 degrees latitude which have
a longer warm growing season.
Perennial peanut grows best
in full sun. Specific rainfall re-
quirements have not been deter-
mined, however, it grows best in
Florida when days are long, hot,
and humid. Irrigation has proven
beneficial during establishment in
spring droughts.
Perennial peanut persists in a
variety of well-drained soil types
and does well in the deep sands of
Florida. Rocky areas and high clay
soil should be avoided if the ob-
jective is to produce for digging. In
northern production regions, clay
soils with excess moisture may
freeze during prolonged periods
with temperatures below 32 de-
grees F. Rhizomes located in the
zone of frozen soil will be killed.
Due to this and the slow spread
of rhizomes in clay soils, the se-
lection of a well drained soil for
planting is particularly important
in northern production regions.


FDOT holds meetings


for mobility issues


The Florida Department of
Transportation, in partnership
with the Florida Heartland Rural
Economic Development Initia-
tive and with the assistance of
the University of South Florida
and Center for Urban Transporta-
tion Research, is undertaking the
Heartland Rural Mobility Plan to
identify mobility and transporta-
tion needs and opportunities for
the Heartland region.
Seven of ten public workshops
remain to be conducted by FDOT,
FHREDI, and CUTR in Florida's
heartland now through Wednes-
day, April 30. The rural mobility


Harch rains bring relief


and Martin/St. Lucie County ba-
sins-received 66-76 percent of
historical rainfall average since
November.
The basin along Florida's
southwest coast (Lee and Collier
counties) received 70 percent of
the historical average.
Rainfall outlook and
current water levels
The recent, much-needed rain-
fall is considered a rarity during
the current La Nifia conditions.
La Nifia is a strong weather
anomaly in the equatorial Pacific
that almost always signals be-
low average rainfall for Florida in
April.
Because of La Nifia conditions,
all official long-term climatic fore-
casts continue to call for below-
average rainfall for the region.
Groundwater and surface wa-
ter levels across most of the Dis-
trict have responded favorably
to the moderate gains from Feb-
ruary, March and early April rain
events. Groundwater levels are in
good shape and are higher now
than this time last year, with the
exception of a few wells in Lee
and Collier counties that remain
low.


.Water levels in the Kissimmee
River are at their regulation, or
optimum, levels and higher than
this time last year. Water levels in
the three Everglades Water Con-
servation Areas in western Palm
Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade
counties are near or above their
regulation, or optimum, levels for
this time of year and nearly a foot
higher than this time last year.
At 10.32 feet above sea level
this morning, Lake Okeechobee
levels have risen three-quarters of
an inch over the past week and
are expected to continue this up-
ward trend.
.However, levels remain about
four feet below the historical av-
erage for this time of year.
Lake Okeechobee is the
source of water for 500,000 acres
of farmland in the Everglades Ag-
ricultural Area and serves as a pri-
mary backup supply to more than
five million South Floridians.

Reminder: April is Water
Conservation Month in Flor-
ida

South Florida's dry season be-
gins in November and ends with
,the start of the wet season, typi-
cally in June.


One of the year's driest months
is April, which historically averag-
es only 2.5 inches of rain District-
wide.
Next week, the SFWMD Gov-
erning Board will consider a reso-
lution declaring April as Water
Conservation Month in Florida.
"April is the ideal time to
heighten water use awareness,"
Wehle said. "We must create a
long-term culture of conservation
to protect South Florida's limited
water resources, not only in April
but every month of the year."
To achieve that, stakehold-
ers have been meeting with the
District to develop a year-round
water conservation program for
South Florida. Their recommen-
dations will be presented to the
Governing Board next week to
guide an enduring, conservation
program across the entire region.
For additional information
on water shortage conditions,
irrigation restrictions or water
conservation, call the SFWMD's
toll-free Water Shortage Hotline at
800-662-8876, contact a regional
SFWMD service center or visit
www.sfwmd.gov/conserve.
Helpful water conservation
tips also are available at www.
savewaterfl.com.


public workshops will be inter-
active exchanges of information
about the Heartland region's mo-
bility issues, needs and potential
improvements.
Public input brings insight to
the planning process and citizens
in DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hen-
dry, Highlands, and Okeechobee
Counties and the four Communi-
ties of Belle Glade, Immokalee,
Pahokee and South Bay are en-
couraged to attend the workshop
in your local area. For information
on where meetings will be held
please call 863-519-2362.
